Your baby's first year is such an exciting time - while you're busy getting to know each other, baby is also developing at supersonic speed!
One of the best ways to support and encourage your little one in reaching new milestones is doing simple age-appropriate activities with them. Play-time is a great way to bond and connect with your baby - yet sometimes as new parents we tend to be unsure about what activities we should be trying out.
This FUN and interactive class based workshop series is delivered by Speech & Language Pathologist Christina Gauci and Paediatric Physiotherapist Claire Galea, and is a great way to learn how you can support your baby's speech, language and communication development, as well as physical milestones through different activities.

"Apart from learning about the different milestones I can expect my son to reach in the coming months, I now understand how to adapt my reactions to his cues so as to support his development. Lots of ideas about different activities that I can plan for him too! A really great workshop! Thank you and well done MyMama!"
"This was such a great workshop - Christina is a gem, very knowledgeable and reassuring. I felt I learned so much during the workshop, and had so many 'aha' moments! We discussed milestones, simple activities, how to speak and read to babies... I definitely feel more confident now that I know how to use playtime with my baby with more intent. Thanks MyMama for this informative course!"
